Very well put together history of the events leading up to the war using mostly news archives from the US, and as well from other news organizations. This has a lot of footage you've seen before, (aka the taking over of Germany, Pearl Harbor) and some you havent (Whoa! I never knew the Nazi Party had a rally in NYC, In Madison Square Garden no less!!) so some of it is quite fascinating. The first half is better than the second half, which is, excuse the term, a bit pedestrian. And there's some rather spotty editing, not too sure if it's splices or what, but some scenes are badly put together. But still, amazing footage!
